Southern exposure for Week 5

Time for our weekly look at what NFC South games will be televised in what areas.

The Atlanta Falcons host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday night and that game will be carried across the nation. But the Saints, Panthers and Buccaneers also will be getting pretty good exposure. Let’s take a look at the map on the506.com.

The Panthers host the Saints at 1 p.m. ET, and that game will be shown through pretty much the entire South, except for Florida. But the viewership for that game is going to extend upward. The game also will be carried through much of Missouri, Illinois, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Michigan.

The Bucs play at San Francisco in a late-afternoon game. Since it’s on the road, there are no worries about a local blackout in the Tampa Bay area. The game will be shown through most of Florida. It also will air in much of California, Nevada and Utah. The game also will be picked up in a few random markets, including Kansas City (where Josh Freeman is a big deal), Houston and parts of Tennessee, Indiana and Pennsylvania.
